release of their new 2 pole SB® 2/0 connector. APP® continues to search for
ways to offer system designers increased power connections in compact
formats. The SB® 2/0 offers larger wire capability and increased current
carrying capability over the similar sized SB® 175 connector.
The proven SB® connector family is based on the original "Storage Battery"
connector that pioneered flat wiping contact technology over a half century
ago. Two to three positions in a genderless, color-coded, mechanically-keyed
housing are suitable for a wide array of power connection applications up to
450 amps and 600V. Low resistance silver plated contacts for wire sizes from
300 mcm (152 mm²) to 16 AWG (1.3 mm²) are held inside rugged non-conductive
SB® 2/0 offers the same external dimensions as the popular SB® 175
connector, but is designed to fit contacts for 2/0 AWG or 70 mm² wires.
These modifications allow the new SB® 2/0 to offer up to 340 amps of power
in the same form factor of the SB® 175 connector that is limited to 280
amps. Larger wire sizes also help to minimize voltage drop over extended
